Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I was onsite at a recent residential project the other day and the sun was at a pleasing angle so I snapped a few pictures for comparison.  Later in the evening I  looked through some of the images, like I do many days, and I was blown away! It’s really nice to look back at how a garden has matured and developed over time. And you can really tell when someone is involved with their landscape and garden. 

I Love ❤️ Watergardens! This is just a snippet of this feature, but I love this view. And the sound is so relaxing 😌

I Love ❤️ My Job!

And –

I love ❤️  #waterfallwednesday!

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Good Morning! It’s #Waterfallwednesday! In fact, it’s the last Waterfall Wednesday of August! Time is flying by… But in this backyard retreat, things are a little bit slower… A bit more relaxed if you will. The lady of the house Works from home, so this is part of her ‘break room’ and her getaway for lunch. Her dogs 🐕 Love to get outside as well – Best drinking water ever 😊 

I wanted to share this gorgeous view with y’all today for Waterfall Wednesday  

This beautiful Water Garden totally changed this private backyard.

You don’t realize how much you would enjoy a Water Garden like this, until it’s right outside your back door 🚪 It will literally change your life for the better! 

Have a Great, Waterfall Wednesday!

You blinked and it’s #waterfallwednesday again! Here’s a beautiful Waterfall we built a little while back. 

We were going for a natural look and feel with this project. There were also multiple viewpoints to think about on this one. I ❤️ Waterfalls! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

It’s always nice to celebrate midweek with a beautiful Waterfall! 

Have a GREAT “Hump Day” 🐫

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

It’s Waterfall Wednesday! My favorite day of the week 😊 I just LOVE sharing pictures of what we do here at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio! I’ve said it for years and I’ll say it again- “Waterfalls are my business, and business is GOOD”!  Here’s a snap shot of a Waterfall from a recent project…

This picture was taken minutes after it was first plugged in… A new creation that produces positive vibrations 24/7!

Literally just brought to life, this little beauty will bring sound and life to this garden for many years to come. I ❤️ My Job! 

Thanks to all! Have a Happy Waterfall Wednesday! #waterfallwednesday

Pond TALE Tuesday… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I LOVE designing and building Custom Water Features! Many of my designs start with a story… Or a ‘Tale’ if you will. Like this one Today for instance… 

The Tale is, on my beautiful brides and my Honeymoon, we drove to the Mountains of East Tennessee. We had a big old time too! ❤️ One day in particular, we decided to get out and ride around and see where the road would lead us. Long story short, we took a picnic 🧺 lunch and headed down a trail into the woods … We ended up stopping by a beautiful stone creek with Several little Waterfalls and a perfect spot to sit down and eat. My wife Jo Was so struck by the spot that I sketched the little stream and waterfalls out on a napkin and promised to build her a spot “just like it” at home when we got back 😊

This is what I came up with based on my sketch and memory from that little spot in the woods outside Gatlinburg. Complete with Natural Tennessee Stone, driftwood and washed out stumps.

I have added a stone patio, a fire 🔥 pit, a grilling area and more, but the original Tale lives on 😊 We just celebrated our 27th Anniversary. This little Waterfall and Pond has brought us much joy ❤️ Heck, I’m still writing stories about it all these years later. 

Here’s a picture of the Waterfalls and Pond from opposing angles.



So there’s a sappy Tuesday Tale about Peace ✌🏻 Love ❤️ & Waterfalls 😊 Have a great day!

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Wakey – wakey, it’s Waterfall Wednesday! 

We got to revisit this project recently & Adam took a few awesome pictures. WOW! After 10 years running 24/7 all I can say is, it has aged well 😊 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

We are past the 4th of July now and entering the “Dog days of Summer”… A shady spot with a soothing waterfall and mossy stream -sounds like the perfect spot to ride it out! 
We designed and built this one around 10 years ago and as you see, it has aged well 😊 That’s one of the magical things about a Pond and Waterfall – They just keep getting more beautiful as the years go by….

I hope you enjoy the picture and I hope you have a great #waterfallwednesday !

 

Happy Pondering 🤔

Waterfall Wednesday is here again. Here is a Waterfall from a recent project. This new Pond needed a powerful biological filter to handle a decent sized fish load, ie; LOTS of Koi… So we specified a customized Bog, aka: Constructed Wetland Filter! Large boulders, cobblestone, washed river gravel & booku  Aquatic Plants!! 
It turned out Beautiful! 👇🏻

This beautiful Waterfall flows from an Awesome natural filter, known as a Constructed Wetland Filter. It doesn’t really look like a filter per se’, it looks natural! Biomimicry at its best! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

It’s gonna be a Beautiful Day! Get out and enjoy! 

Have a great, #waterfallwednesday!

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Good morning! It’s Waterfall Wednesday 😊 

A LOT of my inspiration comes from Nature! I have learned so much from observing natural waterfalls and streams!

I was thinking a lot about why I Love ❤️ waterfalls so much. And also where I get my inspiration to design and build them. It really comes from a love of nature. Streams and creeks and natural waterfalls are always the most beautiful! My goal is to replicate them. To design and build a Water Feature in your backyard that looks, sounds and feels like a natural, organic Waterfall… That’s our goal! 
Today is #waterfallwednesday, I couldn’t narrow down just one image that felt complete today, so here are several 😊 Click on this link and check em out 👇🏻

Have a great, Waterfall Wednesday!
